SKorea police seize beds, baths in crackdown on sex trade

SEOUL (AFP) - South Korean police said Thursday they have seized beds and bathtubs weighing a total of 100 tons during a crackdown on prostitution in the capital Seoul

They said the items and others were confiscated and destroyed during raids on dozens of massage parlours and brothels in the city's eastern district of Jangan.

A massage parlour owner committed suicide in protest at the crackdown which began on July 28, but police vowed to step up their campaign against prostitution, which is illegal in South Korea.
On Wednesday police set up a 270-member special unit to tackle the crime in Seoul.

Police have launched a series of crackdowns across the country since a new anti-prostitution law with tougher penalties was passed in 2004. They prosecuted 34,795 pimps, sex workers and clients in 2006 and 39,236 in 2007.
Clients face a maximum fine of three million won (2,688 dollars) and brothel owners up to 10 years in jail or 100 million won in fines.

Okay..so now beds and baths should be outlawed.

If they are outlawed then only criminals will have beds and baths.
